1After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth.1אַחֲרֵי־ כֵ֗ן פָּתַ֤ח אִיּוֹב֙ אֶת־ פִּ֔יהוּ וַיְקַלֵּ֖ל אֶת־ יוֹמֽוֹ׃ פ
2And this is what he said:2וַיַּ֥עַן אִיּ֗וֹב וַיֹּאמַֽר׃
3“May the day of my birth perish, and the night it was said, ’A boy is conceived.’3יֹ֣אבַד י֭וֹם אִוָּ֣לֶד בּ֑וֹ וְהַלַּ֥יְלָה אָ֝מַ֗ר הֹ֣רָה גָֽבֶר׃
4If only that day had turned to darkness! May God above disregard it; may no light shine upon it.4הַיּ֥וֹם הַה֗וּא יְֽהִ֫י חֹ֥שֶׁךְ אַֽל־ יִדְרְשֵׁ֣הוּ אֱל֣וֹהַּ מִמָּ֑עַל וְאַל־ תּוֹפַ֖ע עָלָ֣יו נְהָרָֽה׃
5May darkness and gloom reclaim it, and a cloud settle over it; may the blackness of the day overwhelm it.5יִגְאָלֻ֡הוּ חֹ֣שֶׁךְ וְ֭צַלְמָוֶת תִּשְׁכָּן־ עָלָ֣יו עֲנָנָ֑ה יְ֝בַעֲתֻ֗הוּ כִּֽמְרִ֥ירֵי יֽוֹם׃
6If only darkness had taken that night away! May it not appear among the days of the year, or be entered in any of the months.6הַלַּ֥יְלָה הַהוּא֮ יִקָּחֵ֪ה֫וּ אֹ֥פֶל אַל־ יִ֭חַדְּ בִּימֵ֣י שָׁנָ֑ה בְּמִסְפַּ֥ר יְ֝רָחִ֗ים אַל־ יָבֹֽא׃
7Behold, may that night be barren; may no joyful voice come into it.7הִנֵּ֤ה הַלַּ֣יְלָה הַ֭הוּא יְהִ֣י גַלְמ֑וּד אַל־ תָּבֹ֖א רְנָנָ֣ה בֽוֹ׃
8May it be cursed by those who curse the day—those prepared to rouse Leviathan.8יִקְּבֻ֥הוּ אֹרְרֵי־ י֑וֹם הָ֝עֲתִידִ֗ים עֹרֵ֥ר לִוְיָתָֽן׃
9May its morning stars grow dark; may it wait in vain for daylight; may it not see the breaking of dawn.9יֶחְשְׁכוּ֮ כּוֹכְבֵ֪י נִ֫שְׁפּ֥וֹ יְקַו־ לְא֥וֹר וָאַ֑יִן וְאַל־ יִ֝רְאֶ֗ה בְּעַפְעַפֵּי־ שָֽׁחַר׃
10For that night did not shut the doors of the womb to hide the sorrow from my eyes.10כִּ֤י לֹ֣א סָ֭גַר דַּלְתֵ֣י בִטְנִ֑י וַיַּסְתֵּ֥ר עָ֝מָ֗ל מֵעֵינָֽי׃
11Why did I not perish at birth; why did I not die as I came from the womb?11לָ֤מָּה לֹּ֣א מֵרֶ֣חֶם אָמ֑וּת מִבֶּ֖טֶן יָצָ֣אתִי וְאֶגְוָֽע׃
12Why were there knees to receive me, and breasts that I should be nursed?12מַ֭דּוּעַ קִדְּמ֣וּנִי בִרְכָּ֑יִם וּמַה־ שָּׁ֝דַ֗יִם כִּ֣י אִינָֽק׃
13For now I would be lying down in peace; I would be asleep and at rest13כִּֽי־ עַ֭תָּה שָׁכַ֣בְתִּי וְאֶשְׁק֑וֹט יָ֝שַׁ֗נְתִּי אָ֤ז ׀ יָנ֬וּחַֽ לִֽי׃
14with kings and counselors of the earth, who built for themselves cities now in ruins,14עִם־ מְ֭לָכִים וְיֹ֣עֲצֵי אָ֑רֶץ הַבֹּנִ֖ים חֳרָב֣וֹת לָֽמוֹ׃
15or with princes who had gold, who filled their houses with silver.15א֣וֹ עִם־ שָׂ֭רִים זָהָ֣ב לָהֶ֑ם הַֽמְמַלְאִ֖ים בָּתֵּיהֶ֣ם כָּֽסֶף׃
16Or why was I not hidden like a stillborn child, like an infant who never sees daylight?16א֤וֹ כְנֵ֣פֶל טָ֭מוּן לֹ֣א אֶהְיֶ֑ה כְּ֝עֹלְלִ֗ים לֹא־ רָ֥אוּ אֽוֹר׃
17There the wicked cease from raging, and there the weary find rest.17שָׁ֣ם רְ֭שָׁעִים חָ֣דְלוּ רֹ֑גֶז וְשָׁ֥ם יָ֝נ֗וּחוּ יְגִ֣יעֵי כֹֽחַ׃
18The captives enjoy their ease; they do not hear the voice of the oppressor.18יַ֭חַד אֲסִירִ֣ים שַׁאֲנָ֑נוּ לֹ֥א שָׁ֝מְע֗וּ ק֣וֹל נֹגֵֽשׂ׃
19Both small and great are there, and the slave is freed from his master.19קָטֹ֣ן וְ֭גָדוֹל שָׁ֣ם ה֑וּא וְ֝עֶ֗בֶד חָפְשִׁ֥י מֵאֲדֹנָֽיו׃
20Why is light given to the miserable, and life to the bitter of soul,20לָ֤מָּה יִתֵּ֣ן לְעָמֵ֣ל א֑וֹר וְ֝חַיִּ֗ים לְמָ֣רֵי נָֽפֶשׁ׃
21who long for death that does not come, and search for it like hidden treasure,21הַֽמְחַכִּ֣ים לַמָּ֣וֶת וְאֵינֶ֑נּוּ וַֽ֝יַּחְפְּרֻ֗הוּ מִמַּטְמוֹנִֽים׃
22who rejoice and greatly exult when they can find the grave?22הַשְּׂמֵחִ֥ים אֱלֵי־ גִ֑יל יָ֝שִׂ֗ישׂוּ כִּ֣י יִמְצְאוּ־ קָֽבֶר׃
23Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in?23לְ֭גֶבֶר אֲשֶׁר־ דַּרְכּ֣וֹ נִסְתָּ֑רָה וַיָּ֖סֶךְ אֱל֣וֹהַּ בַּעֲדֽוֹ׃
24I sigh when food is put before me, and my groans pour out like water.24כִּֽי־ לִפְנֵ֣י לַ֭חְמִי אַנְחָתִ֣י תָבֹ֑א וַֽיִּתְּכ֥וּ כַ֝מַּ֗יִם שַׁאֲגֹתָֽי׃
25For the thing I feared has overtaken me, and what I dreaded has befallen me.25כִּ֤י פַ֣חַד פָּ֭חַדְתִּי וַיֶּאֱתָיֵ֑נִי וַאֲשֶׁ֥ר יָ֝גֹ֗רְתִּי יָ֣בֹא לִֽי׃
26I am not at ease or quiet; I have no rest, for trouble has come.”26לֹ֤א שָׁלַ֨וְתִּי ׀ וְלֹ֖א שָׁקַ֥טְתִּי וְֽלֹא־ נָ֗חְתִּי וַיָּ֥בֹא רֹֽגֶז׃ פ
